    If you want to override settings that you have defined for all drivers in your account, make sure that the check box next to Inherited from Account Preferences is not selected.
  8. Click Save.

ELD settings

You can configure the following ELD settings:

  • ELD Compliant - If your organization is ELD compliant, select “Yes”. This enables ELD functionality for all drivers in your fleet. Drivers must install the Reveal ELD LogBook mobile app on their devices so that HOS information can be tracked.
  • Default Ruleset
    Select one of the following ELD rule sets (more options are available if your organization is not ELD compliant):
    • Federal Property
    • Federal - Oilfield Exemption
    • Federal Passenger
    • Federal No 30 min Break (applicable for oversize-overweight permitted loads)
    • California Property
    • California Passenger
  • Rule cycle: Choose 7 days (60hrs) or 8 days (70hrs). This setting defines whether the weekly cycle includes 7 or 8 days.
  • Start time: Select the default start time for all drivers (when accessed from MY ACCOUNT > Account Preferences > Mobile Options) or for a particular driver (when accessed from Admin > Drivers > Driver list > Edit Driver > Mobile Options). This is the start time that is used for all drivers or for a particular driver on the Graph and Events and Stops tabs of the Status Log screen in the LogBook mobile app. A driver setting overrides the account setting.
  • Default driver time zone: Select a default time zone for all of your drivers.
  • DOT number: Enter your company's USDOT number. This was used when registering your company with the FMCSA.
  • Carrier name: Enter your carrier or company name. This was used when registering your company with the FMCSA.
  • Carrier home terminal: Enter the main address of your company.
  • Commodity: Enter the commodity your company trades in.
